Summer Community Competition 2022

In partnership with MythicCraft we’re hosting a competition for creatives all summer long!

Background

This summer we want to shine light on our entire community because MC Models turns 1 year old, and we tried to think of ways to celebrate the entire community.

During this year we’ve had half a million users on our site, published 600 products, become thousands of members on Discord and together with all of you we’ve helped create amazing experiences that an unthinkable amount of players get to enjoy on a daily basis.

Therefor we’ve decided to host a massive competition over 2 months for every single member of the community, no matter if you’re a vendor on our site or if you’re a user that never even touched our Discord server.

Timeline

18th of June: Competition is announced and we start accepting submissions.
14th of August: Submissions close and we start reviewing submissions.
Roughly 2 weeks after the submissions close we will announce the winners and contact them for prizes.
